After updating to Firefox 73 (running on Windows 7), no pages will load. Saved tabs have a blank URL bar, opening a new tab and putting in a URL does nothing, no built-in pages (such as the various about: pages, options page, etc.) work, nothing. All basic troubleshooting (including refreshing, reinstallation, and so on) completed with no change.

How can the 5 minute timeout on sync verification code be increased to 10 minutes in view of delay receiving code by email?

Due to problems with upgrading my Ubuntu to 18.04, I've been forced to use a LIVE DVD for the last 8 months instead of a properly installed Ubuntu. This LIVE DVD crashes or drops out from time to time so each time this happens I have to re-sync the Firefox it brings up. This re-sync requires a verification code to be sent by email, but because that email has to go through my Google filtering process, it usually takes longer than the code's 5 minute validity before I receive it. When I do finally get it and enter the received code back in Firefox, I'm told the code is invalid or expired. This is because 5 minutes validity is just too short a time for my setup. If it were 10 minutes, that would allow me to go into Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts & Import -> Check email from other accounts -> and then order Gmail to perform a special immediate mailcheck on my selected account. As a slow elderly old codger myself, I find it too hard to do all this within 5 minutes. Why can't we make it 10 mins?

Thank you for the help.

Version 71 FF Won't Run

Ever since my first ever use of FireFox the setting to "update" has been set to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

Yesterday I clicked to accept the latest update (to 71.0 I think) at which point the programme simply crashed without warning.

I went through various processes to try and resurrect FF, but without success --- FireFox would not run.

I eventually resorted to installing Version 65.0 but, despite the update settings being set as above, Version 71 kept installing and making FF a "non-starter" again.

I made an alteration to the "about:config" which seems to have stopped the automatic updating, albeit the "FF Icon" still wants to function as "Updater" and I get a message (when started) saying FF is unable to update to the latest version - "click here to download etc.," which of course I don't do and FF continues to perform as expected - albeit 65 and not 71.

Is there a problem with Version 71 and (possible) Win 7 64 bit ?

How can I reconfigure the "FF Icon" to simply start the programme (version 65) in the normal way and not get involved with it wanting to update all the time?

Another peculiarity that has arisen is that, when I try to change the Default language from American English to British English I receive a message saying FF cannot change as it is not online. (Version 65 and it is definitely online)

I have carried out system scans for Viruses etc., perform really in-depth un-installations of FF, and no new applications have recently been installed.

I've just found that if I do Ctrl + mouse wheel, the page now zooms! I've used Firefox for about 15 years and never had this happen before. The only thing that's different today is that I have just uninstalled Flash?

How do I disable this? I have always used Ctrl+mouse wheel to control the volume. For me, it is essential to be able to quickly adjust the volume with the mouse wheel, and very frustrating not being able to!

Would like to be able to click the bookmarks icon at top of page and see my bookmarks there instead of having to go into Bookmarks Menu or Other Bookmarks to see them. Recently had to reload Firefox program after some work on my PC and lost this option to simply click the icon on top right side of page to have them "drop down" below the icon. Would appreciate any help or guidance with this. Have Windows 7 operating system.

I use Dashlane PW manager and since updating FF, FF states it can no longer verify this and has disabled it.

I have used FF forever and this is not good.

Is this a permanent change or just an oversight? If this is permanent, I will get rid of FF before I get rid of Dashlane.

When I installed Firefox v68 and started the program, it freezed my whole computer completely, even Ctrl-Alt-Delete didn't work. Only a hard reset of the PC (switching off power and restart) revived the system. Sometimes it works for a secodn or two, displaying the start page but then it freezes the system, most times though even clicking the firefox icon to start the program makes the whole system to run aground. The former version of firefox runned fine and solved the problem by reinstalling version 65.

I have been trying to solve this for days now.

My bookmarks keep duplicating out of control. I mean they will go from 500 to 10,000+ in a matter of minutes.

I did have sync running, but I have shut it down in case that was the problem, and it's not restarted now.

This problem is happening on 3 of my computers that were sync'ed. None of them have sync running now, yet they each still have the problem.

1) I deleted all duplicates by hand and then exported/backed up that version without duplicates (well call that the clean copy).

2) I have tried verifying the integrity of the bookmarks database through the troubleshooter. Each time the problem starts happening again after a few minutes. - I have done this on the current bookmarks - I have done this after I have deleted all bookmarks right before restoring, then again right after I restored the clean copy. - I have deleted all bookmarks, closed firefox, deleted the places file, then restored the clean copy.

3) I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox - I have done this then and restored the clean copy

4) I have created a new sync account and tried that, but that did not work either

When in safe mode, the bookmarks do not duplicate. But outside of safe mode they duplicate exponentially. I don't know what else to try.

Hi,

Does anyone knows why the keyword field have been removed from the bookmark properties accessible with the blue star in the omnibar ?

I do find a lot of posts about the description field removal, but nothing about the keyword field.

Keywords are still working in firefox 65 but managing or assigning them became a real pain in the @%µ£.

Thanks for your infos.

As I tried to say in my question, I updated my FF and was immediately forced into setting up an account page? I didn't see the purpose be decided it must be something new I should do? (OK, my bad!) After doing through the agony of creating yet another account/password for something? I see, after the fact, that it has to do with syncing something? Some phase of FF.

I don't need or want such. How do I back out of this so I am not connected with some related account action or unknown in the future? Thank you.

Firefox (65.0.1) on my Mac (Mojave 10.12.2) started displaying everything in Dutch. No matter what I do, I can't get it to switch back to English.

I'm currently in the US (San Francisco), but even if I visit salesforce.com here, even the website defaults to Dutch.

So both the interface (menus etc) of Firefox itself, as well as the content displayed default to Dutch.

See attachment: preferences page is in Dutch, as are the menus at the top, and the tab with SalesForce. Despite that the settings are to show US english.
